The American Synthetic Rubber Research Program: Program.
"A very readable account of the wartime project... This well-researched and referenced book covers the technology of the development, which has its own fascination. But perhaps even more fascinating are the descriptions of the organizations and of the people involved in the program... Morris has produced an excellent analysis of the lessons to be learnt from the story. His book should be made compulsory reading for anyone involved in such multi-party programs." -- Chemistry and Industry
